Road Trip: The Final 950 Miles, Moab, UT to Home in CA

We completed our two-week road trip. Some details:
• We ate 2,980 miles of asphalt across five states: California, Nevada, Utah, Wyoming, and Colorado.
• We were surprised to see wineries in Utah, including a few the Moab desert.
• We traveled as high as 12,500 feet at the top of Breckenridge Ski Area.
• We saw a Colorado Rockies game at Coors Field and loved the 90-degree weather with no humidity. At night.
• We stayed the last night in Eureka, NV, a place that sports T-shirts saying it’s “No Place.” It was two blocks long, had one casino and one greasy diner offering American and Chinese food. We’re surprised we didn’t get sick from the Sweet & Sour Pork with Chicken Chow Mein.
• We passed through a small town in Colorado called “No Name.” That was it’s actual name. It did have a name and it’s name was No Name. Get it? Good.
• And we drove the final 950 miles on Highway 50 through Utah and Nevada, with signs touting it as “The Loneliest Road in America.” It was. On one stretch of about 280 miles, we only passed four vehicles!

    Glad you found some wineries in Moab. They actually have a few noteable wine tasting events and vinyards down in Moab.

    Just some food for thought, since I blog about travel to Moab and noticed your posting here. We should link up our blogs…
